Named a Best Book of the Year by Kirkus

"Gloriously inventive."--New York Times

"Any youngster who enjoys critters and nature will appreciate this book."--5 STARS, Youth Services Book Review

Kids ages 4-7 will get lost in the imaginative world of this wordless picture book

In this colorful and moving portrait told from the up-close perspectives of a young girl and a grasshopper, a garden comes alive with creatures, plants, and surprises of nature.

Grasshopper encourages young readers to:

  • Explore nature around them with curiosity and imagination
  • Respect nature and the creatures who call it their home

While investigating and admiring the insects in her garden, a young girl discovers how her actions impact the little creatures she finds, like a caterpillar inside a pea pod. When she places the caterpillar on an anthill, the ants swarm it

When she captures a grasshopper, she discovers one of its legs has fallen off. To keep it safe from the ants, she places it in a jar--only for another curious creature to come investigate.

As the day progresses, the girl learns the profound effect she can have on the natural world around her.
